For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Romans 5:10 NIV
Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. I also know it because I have experienced God’s love time and again. He loves me not because I have deserved it or earned it, but because he is a loving and compassionate God whose love was revealed in the most earth-shaking way imaginable. Through Christ’s sacrifice, I am assured of pardon. Through his resurrection, I have hope. All the realities of life that trouble me are as nothing before the Lord. I have made countless mistakes. Made many foolish choices. Been irresponsible and thoughtless. Through it all I have never doubted God’s love for me. I may have questioned, “Why me, why now?” but I have always known and know now, that I am forgiven, redeemed, and saved. His grace abounds, even in this broken world, even in my broken life.
